True to its name, this red velvet number is indeed a vixen in red. I first tried their cupcakes when they were still open at SM Manila a few years ago. It is heaven with every bite. The cream cheese frosting is the best. Not too sweet and overpowering. I tell you after that I keep coming back for more. Also I just learned recently, Sonja used to work at the famous Magnolia bakery in New York. Makes me wonder, this cupcake must be close to the flavors of the popular bakery. Anyway! Its a favorite so Im hiving it a five star. And oh, the blueberry ginger tea and strawberry basil iced tea is to die for. So fresh! Thanks for reading!

This place never disappoints! 9786️ Before I hopped on the bus going home, I dropped by their stall in Megamall. I didn't know they have donuts already so I tried one. I ordered the Truffle flavor and one cupcake with a cookie on top. Sorry I forgot how they're called heheh.

The donut is expensive. It costs Php75 for a piece depending on what flavor you'll be getting, however, I loved the Truffle coz it's a combination of creaminess of the cream and the savory taste of the truffle. I loved how they worked well together.

The cupcake, I know it's good but since I flattened it on my way home, the frosting's all over the box so I won't be able to do a review about it. It's my fault. I will order it again and will review when it's not flattened anymore hahaha.. 128514

Finally got to try this dessert food stall at SM Megamall’s Fashion Hall. It’s a two tier shop with one focused on take out and another for dine in customers. Thanks to a sweet tooth friend, Chel, I got to have a dose of cupcakes.

We got to try three from a wide selection of mostly new combinations. It’s novelty is one of Sonja’s reason for success. It has been around for more than a decade now.

Pistachio Berry was our favorite. It’s moist and full, without any filler and the balance of two bold flavors are distributed evenly on our bite. Smores was also delicious. On top of its instagramable look, its taste and textures were on point. It was not too sweet and none of its three components overshadowed each other- marshmallow, chocolate and graham. The last one, Nutella Peanut Butter, sadly wasn’t a Sonja signature. It’s too dry and way too sugary. We barely finished this cupcake.

The store currently has a promotion. Get any cupcake and an iced tea for just Php 175.

Finally tried the expensive donuts of Cupcakes by Sonja's! Selling at 60Php to 75Php each for a regular sized, sugar coated donut filled with an assortment of flavors.

Tried two flavors - Truffle (128075🏻 Ruth D - my truffle loving friend 128514128514) and Creme Caramel (hello, Jairus d 🤣🤣🤣🤣).

I must say that the donuts were soft and fluffy! Both had overflowing filling once you take a bite!

The truffle had a strong truffle kick that will greet your palate! Mixed with a creamy and not too sweet custard, I loved the sweet and savory combination! Instant fave!

Creme Caramel was TDF!!! The caramel filling was salted and had hints of orange. Loved the burnt sugar flavor plus it wasn't too sweet at all! One bite and the filling oozed out like crazy! Would love it more though if the filling wasn't too runny! This donut was also topped with a sweet caramel toffee like crunch!

Sad that they removed Olive & Basil in their menu 128527

Finally got the chance to try out the donuts. MUST..!!! All flavors of our box-of-6 were winners. Pictured:
2 Strawberry Cheesecake
1 Vanilla
1 Chocolate
1 Chai
1 Hazelnut (forgot the exact flavor name.. Hahahha)

And ate a solo Cheese and Pepper - not pictured coz It went straight to ze mouth.. Hahahha.. It was a surprise at first bite but it grew on me. Sadly there were no Caramel or Banana Brûlée.

Will soon go for the dozen so we can try all flavors..!! Good job Sonja's..!! 128525128523127849128582🏼

Cupcake and coffee date with myself. It's good that they have a stall in front of the escalators as the dining area is hidden.

I got an Iced Hazelnut Latte which was way too sweet. It was served in a tall glass and I let most of the ice melt.

The Choco Overload was true to it's name, a chocolate lovers dream but in varying tastes and textures.

I hung out at the table with bar stools because the tiles would make a pretty background plus the other tables were occupied. I couldn't stay that long though as it wasn't the most comfortable position.

Was strolling around megamall when I saw Cupcakes by Sonja. I didnt had any plan buying anything from there, but then I saw a signboard of their new item.. The Fruity Pebbles. You can order it in a form of a milkshake or sammie (ice cream sandwich). I chose Sammie, which is basically a rainbow road ice cream sandwiched in their version of macarons and fruity pebbles crunch. It was so cuteeee!!! Very colorful. Haha I took first several snaps, and oh, it did not melt easily. I love the flavor of the icecream, it was creamy and fruity at the same time. An ice cream that kids would love. The macarons though were kinda sweet. But overall, I still liked it. Ill choose this over their cupcakes. Haha

I have a spare hour to kill so I have opted to look for a place to sit in comfort. Cupcakes by Sonja is situated at the corner of the fashion hall. I had red velvet cupcake expecting it to be as heavenly as I remembered it well. However it was bland and lacking in moist. I must say I was disappointed.

I liked how I was provided with the privacyI needed though. Plus their wifi connection is good as well.

It's only wednesday and the rain is pouring and it is cold and I barely haven't sleep for 48 hours now and we encountered technical problem and I have a nerve rocking presentation earlier this afternoon and I said to myself this is not your best day. Yes indeed it is a gloomy day! But don't be sad just relax everything will be ok then I went to Megamall coz I remember I need to find a sweater or anything that will keep me warm on my trip to Baguio this weekend. Oh no my Baguio Trip, I still haven't packed my things and oh no I need to wash my favorite shirt and pants so that I can use it in my trip. Then I keep on looking for the sweater again. Then I saw the nike hat that I've been eyeing on for weeks now and look for the price and oh crap it's too expensive. Hahahaha 128514128514 then I went to this dead end side of Mega Fashion Hall ground floor and saw Cupcakes by Sonaj and saw the Choco Velvet Mash Up Cake and immediately pay for a slice of it and take a picture of it, then instagram it, then browse the internet while eating the cake. Yes the glorious heavenly sinful cake that is sooo good really good that makes me feel better now. Yes I feel better. Then I went home. 9786

After my bday lunch treat for my Tita Ely last September at Kuya J's Restaurant in Megamall, we went down to the ground floor of Mega Fashion hall building and looking for some desserts. Glad there is a small kiosk of Cupcakes by Sonja. My first experience was at BGC. I'm always a fan of cupcake . Instead of bday cake I bought cupcake for my Tita for her to blow.127874

Got this chocolate cupcake for 100 pesos then I add 20 pesos for the candle. Glad they have. Then I asked the staff if she can write a happy bday greeting on the plate and she did even if she is not an expert doing that.

There are only few chairs and tables but good enough for an intimate bonding , happy bday Tita Ely!

A bit disappointed when I tasted their new product, Cupparons. Too expensive for three small cupcakes (PHP140.00) and their regular cupcakes taste better. Still love their store though. =)

First review for this branch. Been ordering my daughter's giant birthday cupcake from their main branch and so far they deliver! :)
Bought my baby boy's 6-month-bday cupcake here coming from the office. Hunny bunny carrot cake (not sure if tama ba ang flavor hahahah) for the "nutritional value" 128513128514128521128517

*sorry for the photo*

It's not the same anymore. I'm looking for the taste I fell in love with before. Why sonja's, why!!!

There's no spark already. 128528

The cupcake is not that moist. Kinda hard this time.

And why did you remove your flourless? 128533

Red Velvet Cupcake and a shot of espresso while I wait. It's not as good as Cupcake Lab's but this one's good too.

Always have the best cupcakes. The SM branch could have been better if they have a bigger space instead of just a "tuck in the corner" space.

The shop is just underneath the escalator at Megamall Fashion Hall right between Calvin Klein and Zara. Their red velvet vixen is good and isn't too sweet. Not good to pair with lemonade though. Stomachache for me.
